If there’s a theme to painter Jamie Miller’s work, it’s “the itch for northern Michigan.” The scratch for this Ada artist’s itch is his aptly-titled exhibition “North,” opening May 24 at Center Gallery, 6023 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.
Miller’s love affair with northern Michigan brings him to the area throughout the year. He begins a composition with a photograph – of farm fields, rustic structures, pink light in the sky — and returns to his studio to work out the images. He paints in oil on canvas. Miller attended Kendall College of Art and Design where he was introduced to oil painting.
A reception for the artist is Saturday, May 25, 6 p.m. “North” continues through June 27.
Gallery Hours: May: Fri., Sat., Sun., 11am–5pm.
